About The Golden Filter

The Golden Filter are an enigmatic electro duo that started gaining a buzz from their remixes of Cut Copy and Peter Bjorn and John. Even with their identities hidden, word of their music spread after they sent their first song, a breathy, arpeggiated disco jam titled "Solid Gold," to a few music blogs in the summer of 2008. Dummy magazine signed Ohio-born Stephen Hindman (production/synths) and Australian transplant Penelope Trappes (vocals), then based in New York City, to their fledgling label soon after, and the two made plans to play SXSW before going on tour with the Presets. In 2009, the Dummy label released "Solid Gold" as a limited 7" with "Favourite Things" as the B-side. The duo's long-awaited debut album, Voluspa, was released in April of 2010 on Brille Records. This was followed in 2011 by Syndromes, a mini-album accompanying a short film created by the band along with Norwegian director Kristoffer Borgli. In 2014, the Golden Filter released three volumes of demos and previously unreleased material titled Unselected Works. The duo then moved to Optimo Music for their 2015 EP, PS1103. Heavy Bastard, a split-EP with Morgan Hammer, appeared on sister label Optimo Trax around the same time. Still // Alone, the Golden Filter's second proper album (and first since the duo relocated to London), arrived in 2017. ~ Jason Lymangrover
